Why does adding "...while carrying" change anything?
I'm not raggin' on anybody, or saying anyone is wrong...but I keep seeing things like "pulled over while carrying" or "did something else while carrying"...
How is a traffic stop ANY different while carrying? You're doing something completely legal. It's not something that's borderline illegal. It's not anything that's going to change anything. You're just another citizen who got pulled over. Not like the guy pulling you over is a BG...I don't understand what's different about being pulled over with your weapon on you.
I don't really see how it "changes" anything else in life either. It's a tool. I carry a knife, a leatherman, a gun...all are tools to make a job easier or possible. The only situation it changes is the one where I have to use it.
Yes this is the part that makes me nervous
I am new to concealed carry and am still trying to get used to it. As long as it stays concealed there is no problem. My concern is in what reaction I will get when disclosing the concealment which I must do by law. Hopefully it will be reasonable but who knows?
